Update Your Mane at Velvet Salon

Try these fall hair trends

The bright memories of summer are clouded by the dullness of your locks. Hair genius Drew DeLaney and creative director Matthew Gabrels, owners of the just-opened sleek and stylish Velvet Salon, reveal their tips for transitioning your tresses into fall.

Tone It Down
Style: Ombre
Why: The dark-to-light fade is natural and low maintenance (which is why it stays in style).
The pros say: A harsh contrast is a no-no, but a subtle version is always a yes. For both blondes and brunettes, the trick is to deepen color at the roots, keep brightness around the face, and add shine to the ends.

Repair Work
Treatment: Deep conditioning
Why: Sun, saltwater, and chlorine wreak havoc on hair. Velvet’s intensive, two-part treatment restores locks to pre-Memorial Day status with concentrated molecules, a mask, and heat to seal it in.
The pros say: The $20 is money well spent, especially compared with treatments that seem to wash right out. Clients rave over how long their hair feels silky soft.

Under Cover
Style: Bangs
Why: If you thought forehead fringe was too hot and high maintenance for summer, the time to commit to the mod look is now.
The pros say: Bangs instead of Botox. Hesitant about the blunt cut? Try a side bang, worn with a ponytail or curly, straight, or wavy hair.

That ’70s Glow
Style: The modern Farrah Fawcett
Why: The middle part is back and bigger than bell-bottoms. It’s an easy DIY way to update your look; add curls, which hold better during less humid days.
The pros say: Take out your big-barrel iron and spiral-curl hair away from your face. It works for a simple day out or a formal event.

That’s the way (uh-huh, uh-huh) you like it.
